Friday, May 26th: 1 Chronicles 28-29; John 9:24-41 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Chronicles 28-29; John 9:24-41

1 Chronicles 29:10 Therefore David blessed the Lord in the presence of all the assembly. And David said: “Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever.11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.

The prayer continues on in the same vein.  

How often do my prayers sound like that?  David is completely focused on God, and his prayer is totally centred on God and His attributes, praising Him for who He is.  

I need to remember to take more time in my prayers to focus solely on God; praising, blessing, and glorifying His great name!

Yes, so often my prayers are for people, myself or things that are happening that I/we need help with. A good reminder that I need to praise and glorify God, instead of just focusing on my needs or current events.
